DIZZI Report 8 Feb 2013 16:01



ChrisofWessex Report 8 Feb 2013 15:58

Dizzi - see if you can get a stroller - one with four wheels and a boxed seat. Very useful. Can use indoors or out. I have only used mine out and when I have got tired have sat on it, lifted feet and OH pushed me!

I just used the zimmer upstairs but the thrill when I could walk to toilet without it from bedroom! Good going.

Brilliant, just pretend you are in training for the London marathon. Start small and work a little more each day. Will look for you on Tv when the time for the marathon comes. :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D <3 <3 <3

Well done DIZZi, keep up the progress, but at your own pace, lass!


JustJohn Report 7 Feb 2013 19:49

So nice to get such happy news :-D :-D :-D Well done, you.

Not an expert on bras (missed that class in sex education lessons at school). But I prefer front fastening ;-) Incidentally, so does OH.

For any future bra problems - doing them up and then putting them on over feet and up - discovered this when recovering from broken ribs


SuffolkVera Report 7 Feb 2013 16:05

That's great going Dizzi - really pleased for you. But, like everyone says, don't overdo it; slow and steady will get you there in the end.


PatrickM Report 7 Feb 2013 15:51

Sounds like your doing well Dizz, should also give your confidence a bit of a boost.

Just don't over do it or you could do yourself more harm than good.


GlitterBaby Report 7 Feb 2013 14:11

That takes a lot of effort walking for an hour.

As already said do not overdo it.

So nice to hear such positive news.


Merlin Report 7 Feb 2013 13:38

Great news Dizzi, well done!


MayBlossomEmpressofSpring Report 7 Feb 2013 11:11

Hi Dizzi congratulations on both I'm so very pleased for you but as others are saying, one step at a time. Have you tried these new comfort bras with no hooks etc., just put on like a top. I have and find them very comfortable, some even have available soft sponge insert pads in case you need a bit more umph. I have also tried front fastening ones of the ordinary type which are OK.
Good luck in your endeavours, the walking part is marvelous.

<3 <May


BrendafromWales Report 7 Feb 2013 11:01

Very good news Dizzi...gradual progress is better than trying to overdo it.
Waiting to hear about the next step!!!...but as Ann says rest as well,that's really important.

Julia Report 7 Feb 2013 10:37

Congratulations on the Bra problem. LOLOL

AnninGlos Report 7 Feb 2013 10:31

That is great Dizzi, good progress with both. Bras are so difficult to do up aren't they if you have a problem with your arms/hands. But walking for an hour is good, it will strengthen your muscles. Don't overdo it though, rest a bit today.


AnnMarieG Report 7 Feb 2013 10:31

well done Dizzi, worth all the effort.keep it up. <3 <3 <3 :-D :-D
